Matt said, “Ely McDonald’s has donated the kit to Ely City FC as part of the McDonald’s FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme which is now in its third year.
“Grassroots clubs such as Ely City FC invest an incredible amount of time providing their local communities with footballing opportunities. They provide young people with the chance to get involved and feel part of a team. it is important that businesses like McDonald’s support clubs as it means they can use the money saved by the kit and equipment to invest in training more coaches, improving facilities and reducing the costs passed on to players and their parents.
“I’m very proud to be involved in the kit scheme – it’s great seeing teams like Ely City FC in their new kits and we wish them good luck for the new season.”
After last years staggering vase run, Ely City are keen to forge new relationships with local businesses. Manager of the under 18’s Paul Jeffery told Spotted in Ely, “We as a club are keen to strike up new partnerships with all of the new tenants on site and owner, Matt Jarrett was keen to help out and come on board. The kit will be used for all away games this season.”
